Beauty Gurus vs Pro Artists (imats incident)

(portuguese at the end)

English:

Since the IMATS incident that people have been talking a lot about this beauty gurus x pro artists thing. And i just want to use this to express my point of view.

IMATS was always meant for pros and those who are begginers. Youtubers/IG wtv are NOT pros or aspire to be. Of course some brands are going to use some of the most “”famous”” faces to attract more people, if it’s wrong or not, it’s up to them but Imats have rules and everyone (including them) have to respect them.

You cannot do whatever you want and get away with it. If Imats banned those gurus is because of all the problems it was causing not because they “hate” them. And the people that follows them have also to respect that. It’s a shame to see

1: beauty gurus have zero respect and try to sneek into the trade show without a ticket and/or when they were banned.

2: come to social media and bash the trade show AND pro artists

3: their followers are uneducated and say the dumbest things.

Humility is something everyone should have and know it’s something that will take you far. Now, when they bash pro artists that do makeup for a living and think they are above everyone… it’s just being disrespectful. How can you make others work  seem irrelevant just because you make videos and have x followers? If it wasn’t for PROS you wouldn’t have anyyythinggg to be inspired by. And while pros know how to do everyone’s faces they only know how to make one: themselves. So how can someone say they’re teaching something when they can just do one type of face shape? It does not work for everyone.

I don’t have ANY problem with youtubers or Instagrammers, in fact i follow and watch some of them. What i have a problem with is EGO. Do what you have to do but have some respect for those who work as hard or harder than you.

Portuguese:

Desde o incidente no Imats que as pessoas têm falado muito desta coisa de beauty gurus x pro artists. E só quero expressar o meu ponto de vista.

O Imats sempre foi algo destinado a pros ou aspirantes. Os youtubers/IG NÃO são pros ou aspiram ser. Claro que algumas marcas vão usar algumas das caras mais “”famosas”” para atrair mais pessoas, se é errado ou não, cabe a eles. Mas o Imats tem regras e toda a gente (incluidno eles) têm que a respeitar.

Não podem fazer o que querem e sair ilesos. Se o Imats baniu alguns gurus é devido aos problemas todos que estavam a ser causados e não por os “odiarem”. E as pessoas que os seguem têm também de respeitar isso. É uma vergonha ver:

1: beauty gurus ter zero respeito e tentar entrar num trade show sem bilhete e/ou quando foram banidos.

2: irem para as redes sociais e rebaixar o trade show E os pro artists.

3: os seus seguidores têm falta de educação e dizem as coisas mais ridiculas.

Humildade é algo que toda a gente deveria ter e saber que é algo que te levará longe. Agora, quando rebaixam pro artists que têm como trabalho fazer maquilhagem e pensam que são acima de todos… estão só a ter falta de respeito. Como é que alguém pode fazer parecer o trabalho dos outros irrelevante só porque fazem videos e têm x seguidores? Se não fossem os PROS, não teriam nadaaaaa para se inspirar. E enquanto os pros sabem fazer qualquer tipo de rosto, eles só sabem fazer uma: deles. Portanto, como pode alguém dizer que estão a ensinar algo quando só sabem fazer um tipo de rosto? Não funciona para toda a gente.

Eu não tenho NENHUM problema com youtubers ou instagrammers, aliás, até sigo e vejo alguns deles. Eu tenho é um problema com EGO. Façam o que têm a fazer mas tenham algum respeito por aqueles que trabalham tanto ou mais que vocês.

  1. some youtubers are actually professional make up artists though and I actually heard that one of the makeup artists were thrown out too :/ I don’t think its fair to do meet up at IMATS though I find it sort of rude since they block off booths etc :/

    • Some like Jordan Liberty or Wayne Goss. Others like those who were thrown out aren’t. They don’t do it for a living. It’s rude and against the rules. It’s about security. People have to have space to go around, go to booths and wtv and when they have those followers following them everywhere, they are blocking everything and that’s very dangerous if something happens.

  2. I totally agree with this. I’ve heard of Youtubers holding meet and greets at IMATS or similar events, which is so disrespectful. If it’s not your event, don’t try to make it your event. That simple!

    • Exactly. You only can do meets and greets if you have a golden pass or whatever it’s called. Doing it without permission… it’s just asking for trouble.
